and Mary (Foy) Sober
There is lots of information available on the internet about the Sober family, and so I only included here those descendants of Issac that I am most closely related to. As I get more time, I will add the 1000+ names that I have in book form.
Almost all of what I have is the result of the work published by two of my great-great aunts, Ida Sober Woodin, and Ruby Sober Wiltsey. Their research was done long before the internet or even computers were around to speed up their work. So, even though they are no longer with us, thank-you Aunt Ida and Ruby.
First, I'll start with Aaron Sober,one of the children of the people pictured above, Alexander and Mary Sober. Aaron was born in 1837 in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, and married Anna Belle Murray in 1856 in Northumberland County. He died in 1918, and Anna Belle died in 1906.
I am fortunate to posess a letter, written by Stella Sober, daughter to Alexander's brother Aaron, written to her cousin, Louisa (#6). It mostly contains information about the Sober ancestors, and a story about the Sober surname. I have posted the transcription here. MANY thanks to Gary and Janice Leonard for permission to reprint it.
Judson Hall Sober married Eliza Sloan Wilson, born in 1866 in Scotland, on July 4, 1883. They had 10 children:
